This year, I discovered my go-to recipe for family gatherings (ie, holiday dinners) - sweet potato casserole. I made it for more than one Thanksgiving event, as well as for Christmas. It's super easy-peasy and a dish that can be enjoyed by everyone.
3 cans of cut yams (40 oz each)
1 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
Approximately 1/2 lb marshmallows (large or mini)
Approximately 4 oz of pecans, crushed (these can be removed from the recipe for preference or allergies, etc)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a 9 x 13 deep dish pan (I use aluminum, because they're always easy to tote and toss), dump 3 cans of drained yams. Smash with a fork.
3. Add and spread brown sugar evenly onto smashed yams. Pour melted butter evenly on top of yams and brown sugar. Let set for 15-20 minutes. (This is one of the most important parts, as it lets the brown sugar and butter soak into the yams.)

4. Top the mixture with the crushed pecans and marshmallows.
